December 2020
Mila González & Taucia González

In this vignette Mila describes how liberal efforts and displays were not enough to make school a place where she wanted to be. Due to a series of events at school, she began believing the lie that she was not a good student.

This Equity Spotlight Vodcast was inspired by the important, yet under-recognized work, many youth are actively engaged in to create better school systems. This vodcast is structured into a series of five vignettes that share glimpses into critical moments and experiences that shaped and lead one high school student, Mila González, to racial justice work. They are structured in vignettes so that they can be used as connected stories, or independently.
